The staff are very friendly at this hotel in this tiny village. The hotel has a lovely spa pool, sauna and steam-room. All the meals are buffet apart from those in the Bistro. The food is basic but good. The Aurora lounge is a disappointment as there is no way you can see the Northern lights from it as it faces onto the lit car-park and it is poorly furnished. We wanted a room at the back with a hope of seeing the lights from a balcony. Instead we had one overlooking the car-park so too much light pollution and no balcony.

... as we arrived. Thinking that it would take us hours to get our cabin keys, Richard was out of the car like a whippet and by the time the rest of us had caught up with him, having parked the car, we were delighted to find him right at the front of the huge crowd of people, being served. My hero!
The cabins were a few hundred metres from the hotel, tucked away in the woods. Each one had two double beds end to end and two singles as bunk beds above them . An ...
... and the way of life in these villages was coming to an end after hundreds of years which was a real shame. He was clearly passionate about his herd.

After a bit of reindeer feeding we parted company and went home looking forward to our next meal. Will it be reindeer I ...
... herder gave us a talk on 'a year in the life of a reindeer herder' which was interesting to see how closely connected to nature it is. In his words ' nature is the big boss around here but nature also helps us out too' - lots of natural elements mean the reindeer join together as large herds which makes finding/capturing them much more easy. We got to feed some of them before leaving which was so nice although very cold as their fluffy noses picked up lots of ...
After a hearty breakfast we went to the Dog Sled Centre to meet our team of huskies! After a brief tutorial in how to 'control' the sled and stop it was time to set off. As we approached the huskies they began barking and howling in excitement as they just love to sled.
So I took my seat in the sled, wrapped up all cosy in a blanket, while Chloe took the drivers spot at the back on the brakes. Then when we were given the go, Chloe released her foot from the brake ...
Fueled up from a scrumptious breakfast, our next days adventure in this snowy playground was a snowmobile safari! After learning the controls we were off and away driving in pairs to discover more of this beautiful area. We skimmed across frozen marsh, rivers and lakes and through trees covered in snow amongst this wonderful winter wonderland.
The scenery was enough but always up for more adventure Chloe and I decided to hang back at the rear of the group and, when we ...
